A Room with a View (1985) Poster

Trivia

First cinema film of Helena Bonham Carter.
My Beautiful Laundrette (1985) and A Room with a View (1985) both opened in New York on the same day, March 7, 1986. Both movies featured Daniel Day-Lewis in prominent and very different roles: in A Room with a View, he played a repressed, snobbish Edwardian upperclassman, while in Laundrette, he played a lower-class gay ex-skinhead in love with an ambitious Pakistani businessman in Thatcher's London. When American critics saw Day-Lewis, who was then virtually unknown in the US, in two such different roles on the same day, many (including Roger Ebert of The Chicago Sun-Times and Vincent Canby of The New York Times) raved about the talent it must have taken him to play such vastly different characters.
First cinema film of Rupert Graves.
In the book, Lucy kisses George in a field of violets, but it was the wrong season for this when filming so just a plain field of barley was used.
During the process leading up to placing trade ads for the Oscar nominations, Daniel Day-Lewis made it known he was not interested in campaigning for an Oscar nomination. As a result the production company concentrated on promoting Denholm Elliott in the supporting actor category. Elliott was enthusiastic in participating in the process and eventually won an Oscar nomination.
During a film making discussion with Gus Van Sant during the Oregon Sesquicentennial Film Festival, James Ivory stated that he chose to make A Room with a View (1985) because he wanted to return to Italy.
Charlotte Bartlett and Eleanor Lavish discuss the plotline of E.M. Forster's other Italian novel "Where Angels Fear to Tread" when on the picnic. Helena Bonham Carter starred in the film adaptation of the novel, Where Angels Fear to Tread (1991).
